I am a single mother and I have been in school for the last few years working towards my bachelors. Well up until now I have been either part time on campus or full time online. I did this because Hannah and I are so close and I never want to be away from her and/or neglect her. Well, I have decided what I wanted to do for grad school and turns out that that is veterinary medical school. The program will be a bit more demanding than most and probably time consuming as well. I know that there are parents that go into med school but I am wondering if making a step like that as a parent is selfish? Do you lose the right to choose what you want to do as a career once you have children? Can there be a balance between the two?

If your daughter is going to school, then you will be able to divide some time. And no you are not selfish. There is nothing wrong with wanting a better life for you and your daughter. Actually, it may even help the both of you. If you spend all your time together, you two will become dependent on each other. This will create huge problems, it happened to me and my mother and I nearly cracked when I went to school and ended up moving back home. With my kids of my own, I am trying to give them more space. Good luck with school. I know things will turn out well.

Next question overall
would you stay in a relationship if you didn't feel like you were in love...
